Here is something that you may consider using down the road when and if you ever consider doing major reconstruction on the inside. They sell both an insulating spray on and also a sound deadener that sprays on. It has great reviews. They are also right here in Houston. Good luck with your build.
Spray-On Insulation - Automotive Insulation Coatings | LizardSkin
That looks interesting. Probably pretty expensive.

I've noticed a lot of people in the Houston area on here. You work for HPD? So does my brother-in-law.

Ok.. so you do that. You could build an encapsulated, waterproof capsule inside the bus. What's happening to that leak? It just keeps letting water in and rotting your bus away. Not only that, but this waterproof capsule will probably end up accelerating the rot by keeping the moisture trapped up against the steel.
In a couple years your waterproof capsule is lying out in the open on top of a pile of iron oxide with some wheels and windshield glass lying around.
Ok, that last statement is a slight exaggeration, but why would you put any work into the bus interior if you're just letting the structure rot? Maybe if you were disposing of it next year..
Sealing it from the inside isn't sealing at all. Sealing is done from the outside. Water coming through the roof of your house? You don't "seal" the ceiling drywall with some bedliner, you fix the leak in the roof.
I was trying to think of something to do to make sure water stays out this summer/fall/winter before I can put time into the exterior work next spring. I think my biggest return on effort would be to seal all the windows and fix the hole in the emergency exit door. I may have to gut it (or work around whatever is in it) in the spring when I work on the exterior. With that in mind, I may wait to insulate until the spring as well.

I don't use condoms. See the earlier post about the nut cancer/uniballin.

How does that even happen? And I suppose the method of removing herculiner is similar to the method of removing superglue. See also: American Pie 2.

Ok so could you use Lizard Skin on the outside roof area or is there something better that could be sprayed or rolled on over the paint to seal the roof?

I'm not sure of the cost, might be worth checking out with a phone call. I'm retired HPD after 20 years. Used to fly helicopters for them. If you ever need help (free labor) let me know. I'm hoping to get one soon and am dying to learn everything about the process.
